Time to make some changes

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Some of my best weeks lately have been so busy that they were very exhausting. When that happens, I crave down time, and yet, when that comes, I long to be out and about and socially involved again. It gets to be like a merry-go-round after a while. I may start out with an empty week on my calendar, but by Monday morning, the days are filled in with no end in sight.
I think I need to strike a balance somewhere. I can picture myself relaxing on my couch with a book, or meditating on some spiritual things I have read. It isn't that I don't have the time when I'm home, it's that I don't set aside quiet time to just truly relax as a priority. I'm just now realizing that I NEED TO DO THAT. It wasn't that important before now, but as I got busier and busier last week I began to recognize that my patience was growing thin and I wasn't as generous and tolerant as I would like to be with some of the people I had to be with. Since I don't like me when I get like that, I need to stop in my tracks and change my course. It's the same as when we see our weight climbing higher and higher and we know it's time to make some changes. Well, it's time for some changes in my life, for positive affirmations, for quiet prayer, for thinking on things that are good and holy, and turning off the activity for a while. It's time to emoticon and smell the emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Patty, Having quality Me time is important for all of us. I'm glad you are taking the time you need to reflect, read, think and just clearing your mind of too busy to do things. I think possibly I give myself too much ME time and not enough of engaging in life that I should. I also get "short" with people when I'm stressed and haven't taken care of myself well. You are such a wise Lady so just DO IT for YOURSELF!!

    Hugs,

    Jill

    I have to agree with you, Patty. When we start getting impatient and we have low tolerance, we know something is off kilter. My whole body and mind is off. I have to come up, with God's help,something to set up some kind of schedule for myself.
    Hopefully, we can both become "nice" people again and be liked by all lol.
    Good luck to you, hon!
